She said he had a big wound. He was a strangled with a cloth.

Pornpen said she earlier asked Weerachai to eat out with her. She returned to find him and the dinner was untouched.

Pol Col Piradej Charoendej, commander of Muang Nakhon Pathom police station, said Weerachai had five wives, each of whom supports herself.

Piradej said Weerachai loaned money and the murder police was motivated by a loan dispute. Jealousy was not an issue because all of his wives know one another and did not quarrel, he said.
